  • Powerful, passionate, punchy and provocative

    Liverpool Echo
  • At last a book on Liverpool with the heart and zest the city deserves . . . a cornucopia of colour and detail

    Jamie McKendrick, poet
  • The remarkable sweep and scope of this book traces the many origins and formative energies of this most anarchic, carnivalesque, promiscuous and contradictory of cities

    Paul Farley, poet and author of Edgelands
  • The author has threaded his way through [a] tangled web of materials vividly to evoke for us a distinctive myth-history of the city

    Peter Robinson, poet and editor of The Liverpool Accents
  • A melancholic peregrination through Liverpool and its history . . . the book distills a history of the slave trade, migration and the development of the port, establishing Liverpool's peculiar character via familiar themes: football, sectarianism, music, dialect, violence, dockers and the Militant tendency
